When Michael Burke retired from his job with the Fire Department of New York, he picked up exactly where he'd left off: working at his stepfather's pizzeria in Staten Island.

Denino's Tavern, one of several famous local pizzerias on the island, has grown immensely under his watch. Yet, even as Burke and his family plan the expansion of Denino's into a franchise business, the small-town spirit of the restaurant continues to shine. Intent on preserving the quality of the pies, he also hopes to deliver the feeling of familiarity that's drawn locals and visitors to this neighborhood corner for over half a century.
